NEW LIMERICK — Officials say a 22-year-old man has died after his car crashed into a moose in northern Maine.

Nathaniel Cady, of Linneus, died Wednesday at Eastern Maine Medical Center in Bangor.

Police told the Bangor Daily News that Cady suffered serious head injuries Sunday night when his car struck a large bull moose on U.S. Route 2 in New Limerick moments after the animal had been struck by another vehicle. Cady was flown to the Bangor hospital, where he remained in critical condition until his death.

Cady’s two young children, who were in his car at the time of the accident, were not injured.
